I wouldn't: I'd try Gabapentin or Lyrica (pregabalin) plus an antidepressant. I'd consider the implantable stimulators. I have seen patients have pain or frequency disappear. Urologist or pain physician would put them in. Norco long term will make pain worse and doesn't work for neuropathic pain anyway.
